Event description

Description

The Club 1964, Inc. Annual HBCU Symposium is the only national convening of past, present, and future students, personnel, and advocates of Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

Last year's inaugural convening of over 400 delegates featured:

  • The Office of the White House Initiative on HBCUs
  • The Executive Editor of the South Florida Times
  • Local and State Recruiters for Teach for America and Breakthrough Collaborative
  • The Campus Outreach Director of the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC)

Our Keynote Speaker was the one and only Storyteller Dr. Crystal A. deGregory (@HBCUstorian), Founder and Executive Editor of HBCUstory, Inc. -- and her address, "Stony the Road We’ve Trod— The Perilous Place of HBCUs in the Age of Obama and Anti-black Respectability," was nothing short of amazing.

Themed "Expanding Our Horizons," this upcoming 3-day convening of HBCU scholars, professionals, and stakeholders is sure to expand the thought and understanding of all who attend as we examine HBCUs and their efforts to expand their impact into fields of education, healthcare, and social justice reform.

You don't want to miss what's in-store for the second convening of the Club 1964, Inc. Annual HBCU Symposium.

FAQs

Will lodging and travel be provided?

Though lodging will not be provided, we have negotiated with nearby hotels to offer lodging to our delegates at discounted prices. We recommend that all delegates stay at the designated hotel(s) as there will be daily shuttles to transport delegates from the hotel to the campus site.

May I stay at a hotel other than the designated ones?

Yes, you may. However, please consider that, as stated earlier, transportation will only be provided to and from Florida Memorial University and the designated hotel(s).

Are any meals provided or should I prepare to make my own dining arrangements?

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided at appropriate times from the commencement to conclusion of the Symposium.

My institution is not sending a delegation, but I'd really like to come. What can I do?

Though we recommend current students attend as part of an official delegation of their institution, this is not a requirement by any means. In fact, given the current restraints of many of our institutions, we encourage those who desire to attend to either register themselves and make their own arrangements or work with their Student Government and Administrators to find innovative ways to secure funding for an official delegation.

What is the refund policy?

Only Early Bird and General Registration tickets are refundable. Refunds must be requested by March 1.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Please forward all questions, comments, or concerns to the 2017 Symposium Staff at HBCUHorizons@club1964.org
